Tata Tiago EV announced; new entry-level electric car
The Tiago EV is expected to be the most affordable model in the brand’s EV line-up.
On the occasion of ‘World EV Day’, Tata Motors has announced that it plans to expand its EV portfolio to make electric cars more accessible in India.
The carmaker, in a statement, has revealed that it plans to launch 10 new electric vehicles in different product segments, body styles and affordability levels. At present, Tata Motors offers the Tigor EV, Nexon EV Prime and the Nexon EV Max. Soon, the company will introduce its smallest EV offering, the Tiago EV.
Announcing the company’s EV plans, Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. said,
“World EV Day is indeed a special day for us, as we look back and reflect on our journey so far. We are proud to lead the EV market in India, with a lion’s share of 88%. As early entrants, we have shaped the market and seen it grow with Nexon EV and Tigor EV. We have over 40,000 Tata EVs plying on road and we are grateful to the early adopters who have shown faith in the brand. Leveraging group synergies, we have also established Tata UniEVerse, a one of its kind EV ecosystem, which is further propelling the EV adoption.
“Earlier this year, we had unveiled our 3 phased approach towards building a comprehensive EV portfolio. As we accelerate our future journey, we are committed to launch 10 EVs in different product segments, body styles and affordability levels. Today, is a momentous occasion for us, as we announce the expansion of our EV portfolio further with a new mainstream intervention from the stable of Tata Motors, the Tiago EV. As a leader, we are now pioneering the next phase of the EV market expansion, which will bring all the EV benefits of an exciting yet easy drive, silent cabin, low cost of ownership to a more accessible level.”
Tata hasn’t shared any details of the Tiago EV yet. However, instead of using a standalone electric architecture, the car is likely to be based on a modified version of the Tiago platform. It also is expected to be the most affordable model in the brand’s EV line-up.
